Ambrose urges Fray to make most of chance

Curtly Ambrose, the former West Indies fast bowler, has urged Bermuda batsman Terryn Fray to make the most of his opportunity in today's T20 which forms part of the official opening of the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba.

Fray and Ambrose are included in an International XI also boasting former Test players Herschelle Gibbs, Devon Malcolm and Imran Khan that will face a Brian Lara XI.

“This is a situation where he gets to rub shoulders with I'm quite sure some of his idols and be a part of this whole set up here,” Ambrose, who took 405 Test wickets, said.

“This should do well for him, and I just and to encourage him to even get better and hopefully attain the heights that someone like a Brian Lara attained in cricket.”

The Brian Lara XI boasts the likes of West Indies players Dwayne Bravo, Denesh Ramdin, Dinanath Ramnarine and double world record holder Lara.

The match starts at 8pm Bermuda time at the multi-purpose stadium.
